‘MARRY ME’: ONE GLITTER INSPIRED ROMANCE THAT MUST SETTLE IN

June 29, 2022 2 Comments

Back for the first time in a while, Jennifer Lopez stars in a new romance that tries to dig a bit below surface in Marry Me.

Marry Me (2022) Film Review

Kat Valdez (Lopez) is a pop star with plenty of hit singles; her latest, ‘Marry Me,’ is climbing the charts while she’s about to say “I do.” Thing is, she’s not just going to marry in an intimate ceremony, but on national television and with a live audience and her collab partner. When he breaks her heart seconds before she’s to go on stage and say “I do,” Kat gets raw with her audience and in a moment of brief clarity, she says “yes” to what she thinks is a proposal from a man in the audience holding a ‘marry me’ sign.

A dad just trying to make a good life and be cool for his daughter, Lou (Chloe Coleman), Charlie (Owen Wilson) doesn’t even know who Kat Valdez is. Yet, suddenly after this unplanned concert, he’s now on stage saying yes to her in a wedding ceremony. Post wedding, Charlie is whisked into a world he doesn’t know all while trying to remain being a good dad and teacher.

This is one of those movies, not unlike some of the others I’ve seen recently, that many gushed over. It’s also one I didn’t get to see, nor did I buy when it released. Instead I waited because I knew it’d show up on a streamer I paid for, and sure enough, it did. The film marks the return of Jennifer Lopez to a kind of romantic-dramedy film, and as usual she’s good. My mom really likes her as an actress, and given that I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen her in, I have to say I’d agree. Similarly, Owen Wilson always makes for a likeable character easy to root on, and his Charlie is no different. He’s still likable as is Coleman’s Lou (who you may remember from Prime’s My Spy).

Despite all the fun, this one takes time to settle in. The early portion feels “off” and not totally good. Something I think is intentional because it’s trying to establish what it’s like to have a camera in your face all the time. I think the filming also reflects this. Once the film settles in and finds its groove, it’s really pretty sweet. There’s some one-on-one scenes between the main characters that are just lovely and heartwarming.

By the time all is said and done, the film is sweet. It has things about it I don’t love (like pointed narratives with some comments), but this is one of the popular ones I did enjoy. In the end, the film does entertain.

You can find Marry Me (2022) digitally on Amazon Video; currently, it’s with Prime.

Content: there is some sexual innuendo and suggestive remarks. A couple sleeps together (the scene starts with kissing and skips to the next morning with him in bed, and her in his shirt); and there is reference and discussion about a man who cheats. There’s also comment about a woman in a same-sex relationship. Some suggestive dancing/songs if that bothers you; one in particular is about religion but the performers are dressed in suggestive costumes/leather. There is also some profanity, including the use of the f-word.
